I delved into my love of Alice in Wonderland in my first post reviewing the Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Palette. The film holds a special place for me, and the curious character of Alice has always appealed to me so much more than the classic Disney princess who waits for her prince to save her. Instead Alice makes a series of decisions for herself deciding her own fate and learns a few lessons along the way. That and the psychedelic drug references, which always crack me up, total make the 1951 animation worth watching even as an adult!
In terms of packaging, I will say that I feel these look a bit ‘cheap’ – much like the Gwen Stefani Lipsticks did. Perhaps that’s because my standards were set by the slick gunmetal bullets of the Revolution line. These are plastic, with a wraparound kaleidoscope pattern that has a visible seam where the pattern overlaps. Call me a design snob, but little details like this standout to me. If I didn’t know these were Urban Decay, I would assume they were drugstore-priced… just sayin’!
Regardless of design however, the inside is what really counts, and the quality and pigment stands up to what I expect from Urban Decay. These make me really excited to see what the soon to launch 100 shade Vice Lipstick Range will hold for us all! Since the Alice Through the Looking Glass Collection is limited edition, I suggest you order one asap if the colours tickle your fancy!
